Soil Testing & Analysis

Soil Testing and Analysis

A gorgeous, healthy landscape begins with soil testing. Testing the soil is an important step in determining the fertility and health of the soil, and discovering how to ensure optimal growing conditions for your plants. At Northeast Horticultural Services, we offer soil analysis services in Fairfield, Westport, Weston, Connecticut and the surrounding areas.

Soil testing offers several advantages for improving your landscape, particularly when you consider that most soil is lacking at least one essential nutrient. Soil that is nutrient deficient stresses the plant and results in insufficient growth and poor plant health. If you want to improve plant health, soil analysis will provide the information you need to diagnose the source of the problem with your plants.

Northeast Horticultural Services provides comprehensive soil analysis and detailed reports about the current health of your soil. Whether your goal is to improve plant health or maximize crop productivity, we offer testing services to identify problems with your plants and recommend the best way to improve the soil.

Standard testing services measure the calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and pH level of the soil. In addition, a standard test will provide information about the base saturation, cation exchange capacity, and lime requirement index. If you require more information, additional testing can be done to measure the zinc, iron, manganese, nitrates, soluble salts and organic matter in your soil.
